Many of these students come from very different backgrounds than my own, and it has been fascinating to hear about their lives and share about mine with them. Despite our differences, I’m always able to find wonderful similarities.

Congratulations on your admission to Grinnell College, and welcome to our community!

It is so refreshing to see people come to our town from all over the world. Many students at the College come from larger cities than Grinnell, but we are an extremely close-knit community with fantastic amenities.

I own a local restaurant called Pagliai’s Pizza, and over the years I have enjoyed working with and getting to know many students at my restaurant. Many of these students come from very different backgrounds than my own, and it has been fascinating to hear about their lives and share about mine with them. Despite our differences, I’m always able to find wonderful similarities.

I hope you’ll stop by Pagliai’s (maybe for $10 two-topping medium pizza Wednesdays?!) with your family and friends many times in the years ahead, and I wish you all the best for your college experience.

Best,

Joey Pagliai
